Weekend Festivities.

I had a nice surprise to come home from work  on Thursday morning. Husband declared that the sewage backed up at his work, and so, he didn't have to go in because they closed the entire building. Yippee, Skippy!!! I love it when the husband is off on weekdays especially on weekdays that I'm off! It got way better because when we got home that evening, the office called again to say that he has Friday off too as the cleanup is still being worked on! 

You would think that we would take off somewhere. But, we pretty much stayed local and hung out. Ran errands, ate BBQ, and watched the Celtics game, (HAH!). 

The weekend was a different story as we were on the go, go, go! We went to the SPCA Doggy Dash on Saturday morning. This was our 2nd time participating in the event as we had tons of fun last year. Lots of smiling dogs, happy people, beautiful day, and lots of walking, walking, walking. 

Here's a pictures before taking off to the Doggy Dash.  She has NO IDEA how much fun she's going to have in the next 30 minutes.

As we were walking towards the event area, Maddie was extremely excited. Like, really, excited! She kept crying as we were approaching the area because she saw so many dogs ahead of her. She just wanted to play! 

When it came time to walk around the park, she finally settled down a bit, which we blamed on her being a wee bit of tired. There were all kinds of dogs in sizes. From the itty bitty's to the medium sized, to the extreme large dogs like the Great Dane's! 

We were pretty much walking in sync with this oh-so-cute basset hound, but he paid no attention to Maddie. Poor Maddie. =( 

There were dogs in strollers. 

There were dogs dressed up in tu-tu's!

 We strolled through the area of breed specific rescue booths. Just had to snap up this picture of the greyhounds. I can't help but wonder if they would kick my ass if I ran with them. 

Our weekend was jam packed with the addition of celebrating a friend's 40th birthday and another friend's 40th/graduation from Neurosurgery residency at Stanford, we are totally spent! How was your weekend?
